    No a graphics processor is not a CPU, but it's still a processor. I think were all saying the same things..

    Seems that someone is a little haughty in their speech! We are way to earlier to start using terms like "Post PC-Era". Okay jobs you struck oil with the ipod,iphone, and ipad (which is debatable) but don't let that go to your head and here are some reasons...

    1. You can't randomly download and install files off the internet at your free will.

    2. Flash is not that big of a deal to me but people LOVE compatibility with just about any and everything.

    3. Keywords: OPEN SOURCE, apple really isn't a fan of this.

    Those are only a few reason and theres plenty more. I love apple products but apple moves to the beat of their own drum. PC's aren't going anywhere at least no time soon. Jobs just needs to keep running his company the way he's been doing and keep making great products and let the people choose when the "PC-Era" is dead.

    This is still yeeears away, but it is coming. And it should. Advancements in technology will provide us with smaller and better machines. I can't wait until tablets can replace a full sized desktop replacement laptop.

    He did make an overgeneralization but you would be a fool to think that there isn't a chunk of Apple product users who buy the product because of aesthetics.

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

    There is no way that the PC is going to die anytime soon, we will still need it for major things, like running processor intensive applications. (i.e. AutoCAD, Revit, etc. for designing buildings)

    That being said, I could see Tablets being a good replacement for the non tech-savy people, especially if they could sync to the web. I do agree with the article that it would definitely reduce my free support hours helping friends and family with computer problems.
